  • The 12 Week Year

  • Get More Done in 12 Weeks Than Others Do in 12 Months

Most organizations and individuals work in the context of annual goals and plans; a 12-month execution cycle. Instead, The 12 Week Year avoids the pitfalls and low productivity of annualized thinking. This book redefines your "year" to be 12 weeks long. In 12 weeks, there just isn't enough time to get complacent, and urgency increases and intensifies. The 12 Week Year creates focus and clarity on what matters most and a sense of urgency to do it now.

Vaynerchuk gives great advice in this book on the topic of brand building in the 21st century. A must read for Millinials, Gen-Xers and especially the Baby Boomers on how to adapt and see the oppertunities the Web provides.
